Rebolt/Corellian Hound

Admittedly, there has been little to no reason for me to go on toy runs for longer than I can remember at this point, but I did need something at Walmart today (much to my chagrin) and stopped by the toy aisle. I couldn’t believe what I foubnd. Would you like shelf space with your Resistance Tech Rose figures, Walmart? Curious, I stopped at two more local stores where I witnessed these same overbearing pileups. If you look closely, you will also find Rey figures on significant discount too. Hasbro needs to plan future case assortments carefully, and choose the best characters that will appeal to their customer base. Why must this constantly feel like wash, rinse and repeat with every new Disney Star Wars film release?

We have a special sneak peek first look for you of the Star Wars [Solo] Two-Packs wave 2 sets. The Chewbacca (Mimban)/Han Solo (Mimban) set is more delightful than expected. Both Chewy and Han are filthy just like when they met each other for the first time in the prison pit. The detailing and sculpting have exceeded expectations, all the while covered in mud. The chains are removable, and Chewy comes with an impressive three-piece cannon. The Rebolt/Corellian Hound set is equally intriguing. Hasbro has crafted a beautiful cage for the Corellian Hound with functioning parts and delicate detailing. The Corellian Hound itself comes with excellent articulation including a hinge-jointed jaw. Rebolt is a bit puzzling, but a nice figure nonetheless. He looks part Lobot and Cloud Car Pilot with the regal look and feel of someone on Coruscant. Click any thumbnail below to be taken to that review. Full reviews and additional images coming soon!

If you’re not aware of this set, the Super Battle Droid is a pretty solid figure. Jango Fett isn’t half bad at all either. Special thanks to JTA reader Craig. F. for alerting us to this great online deal!

You’d be silly to ignore the many things about the modern state of collecting that are devastating the line. Examples like collectors waiting as if they’re vultures for Hasbro stuff to go on clearance at Walmart and TARGET. And seeing Toys R Us’ merchandise that was clearanced out by competitors MONTHS ago sit and collect dusts on shelves are just some of the issues that don’t go away. Granted, Toys R Us has been foolish. They never were competitive with promotional prices and their clearance timing was the worst. But, see the image below. While anecdotal, it paints a broad picture of what is wrong with the Star Wars line. I could beat a dead horse here, but it’s clear to say that there is too much focus on certain Star Wars Entertainment that Star Wars fans aren’t supporting and buying. I have similar pile-ups at my local Toys R Us stores, albeit different products, but the same principles apply. Until the Hasbro line gets back to basics, we’re going to continue seeing these trends. And with Toys R Us gone, it means that either less volume will be produced, or the remaining retailers will be overstocked next. And I don’t think Walmart and TARGET will ever buy another bridge again when it comes to Star Wars. Their current stock levels are so low now that it’s almost impossible to find anything new there any way (except for the same repeated figures that shouldn’t have been reissued). It seems the Star Wars line is being forced into online oblivion. I am at a loss how this Titanic can be turned around. Special thanks to JTA Facebook reader Todd L. for the image!

JTA moderator Sjefke is thrilled to find a $5 Rathtar set at his local Walmart on clearance, but this speaks volume. It speaks volumes how poorly case assortments are treated. How this item was repackaged for Force Link 2.0 is beyond comprehension. A simple visit to any retail establishment would have proven that it was the last set to repackage. Here we are in June 2018, and both Force Link 1.0 and Force Link 2.0 sets are piling up. They might as well start giving these away like Oprah gave away cars on that landmark episode of her show.

Who still cannot go to Toys R Us or ROSS without seeing an inordinate amount of The Force Awakens product on store shelves? The stuff is so old and unsellable that it’s literally rotting on shelves. Look at how this Flametrooper figure is discoloring right before our eyes.

JTA reader Aric B. sends us images of new TARGET shippers arriving at stores. I have not seen these at any of my local stores. Interesting. This is the first I have heard of them or seen them. The design is a little outdated if you ask me.

Sainsbury’s (a supermarket chain in the UK) have Star Wars [The Last Jedi] 3.75″ figures for sale. What’s interesting at this particular location, however, is that the male characters are on the shelf with a full £11 price tag. But the female characters are ‘reduced to clear’ at £7.33! Someone needs to do something about this. The female characters of Star Wars deserve the same higher MSRP as their male counterparts. Special thanks to JTA reader Shoretrooper for this disconcerting turn of events.

Well, it goes without saying that 5POA is generally NOT OK, but Hasbro is making it easier and easier to refute that argument. The lastest Force Link 2.0 wave 2 figures are showing once again that this format is getting better and better and the sculpts (and their seamlessness), likeness, features and articulation are getting infinitely better when compared to how they were when this format “restarted in 2013. Princess Leia Organa is the best modern version of the vintage Kenner Leia Organa (Hoth Outfit) we have now. Sorry, it pains me to say it too, but it’s true. The proportions and likeness are stunning. The new weapon is perfect, and the details are unprecedented for this version of Princess Leia Organa in action figure form. Aside from some sloppy paint operations, this figure is gorgeous. Somethin’s coming over the latest Solo figure. Moloch’s got a secret. The figure has a “hidden” removable mask and reveals a cool character that resembles a skesis from The Dark Crystal. This character also doesn’t have feet and has a wormlike body (details shown in our photo gallery). Check out these first look sneak peeks and come back when the reviews go live SOON!
